Advantages

  Tax-free: When you sell stocks that have appreciated greatly, your capital gains are taxed at 50%. By donating them to Mission inclusion, the capital gains are not taxable.
  Simplicity: Your broker will transfer the listed securities to the Mission inclusion account at the time of your choosing.

  Tax receipt: You will receive a tax receipt for 100% of the market value of the shares at the time of transfer.
